If evidence of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe were discovered, would it alter your core beliefs or sense of self?
And I’m ready to accept that there are a lot of things about our world/universe that just cannot be explained. I’m okay with that.
In general, I can be pretty skeptical about the paranormal or the existence of intelligent life beyond earth. But there’s also a lot of evidence out there that just leaves me baffled. So I’m really fine with throwing my hands up or shrugging my shoulders. I can’t have the answers and that’s all right.
But what about you? If extra-terrestrials made themselves obviously known to the people of earth, would it have an effect on your beliefs? On your faith? Let me know in the comments!
